Subject: I kinda like it
But why does it still exist while so many truly classic works (including film, TV and radio) are lost?

Subject: Bacteria: Friend and Foe
This film starts out a little bit like a Coronet film, with high-schooler Ted struggling to see bacteria in a microscope and being helped by his older brother Frank, a bacteriologist who bears a slight resemblance to Dr. Radford Baines. Unfortunately, it's not long before this becomes a standard dry EB science film about the various kinds of bacteria. There aren't even any killer shrews in it. The graphic elements are mildly fun, with title cards in various shades of Pepto-Bismol pink and a sort of periodic table of bacteria on the wall that Frank refers Ted to. But mostly this is the sort of film most students probably slept through.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.

Subject: The title is somewhat cryptic, don't you agree?
Ed, a man with a SERIOUS parting of the hair-do, goes into his brother's lab, and starts wondering, as we all do, about Bacteria. From there comes this typical science film made for high school kids about them bacteria. There are good bacteria and bad bacteria, see how they feed! see how they multiply! If this all sounds boring and not worth your time, well, you're right! :P
